To lead in our interview with Cindi, our engineer Patrick played "A Change is Gonna Come" by The Gits.
Some items Brian covered in our News in Brief:
- The Episcopal Diocese of L.A. has officially condoned the blessing of same-sex unions.
- The Vatican opposed a UN resolution calling for decriminalization of homosexuality and decrying discrimination based on sexual orientation, with one representative calling it representative of the "modern savagery that will dismantle our society from the inside out.” But many Catholics around the world and at St. Peter's Square publicly protested the stance.
- The Iowa Supreme Court began hearing arguments yesterday about the legality of withholding civil marriage rights from same-sex couples. The suit has been winding through the Iowa courts for three years.
